Parents of Teens

Feb 7, 14, and 21 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM | Room C206
February is the month of Love, but love and luuuuv are sometimes hard things to talk about with our children. If you dread having “THE” conversation, with your elementary, preteen, or teenage child, the one about Purity and what that means, then come to the Parents of Preteen class for the next three weeks as we tackle important topic and look at what the Bible says about “THE” topic, your role in it, but also talk about practical do’s and don’ts for having this important conversation. Parents of Preteen meet in Room C206, second floor of the Children's Wing,  at 11:00 AM.

Nehemiah Sermon Series

Sundays, 9:30 AM, Worship Center
Don’t miss Pastor Gideon’s new sermon series from Nehemiah in the Worship Center at 9:30 AM on Sunday mornings. Visit SERMONS to catch up on past messages.

"Expect Great Things from God . . . Attempt Great Things for God" Nehemiah was a man who was determined, he stood strong in the face of serious opposition. His courage came from believing that the favor of God was upon him and that God would grant his people success when they are centered in His will. As we pursue the vision God has for us who better to learn from than Nehemiah. We too, should ‘Expect great things from God as we attempt great things for God.”
